Steak was overcooked and bland. Sea bass was supposed to be seared and it was poached. Service was great but meal was very poor, even for a $$ restaurant. Definitely not up to par for a $$$$ restaurant.

Awesome Dinner as usual. I took my wife for our Anniversary and had awesome time. The staff had a special table with a personal note, complimentary appetizer and dessert. Great touches. I will continue going back for special occasions!

Great food and a great restaurant. But, the prices are accelerating faster than their service and food quality. $47 for a 10oz filet is a bit steep in addition to having to fork over ~$10 for sides. Again, great food and service, just not sure the value is there.

Uncharacteristic of MANY visits to Capital Grille, this time my meal was not great. I went for the surf and turf special and the filet and Australian lobster were dry.
However I WILL go back because I’ve had countless amazing meals in the past - just won’t order a special.

Overall the food was excellent! Since we are spending some money on the experience, we would appreciate the tables to reflect as such. The table that we sat in for four was not as spacious as we would like with 4 orders of steaks and sides. Service was great!

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and everything was excellent. The atmosphere, the food was freaking amazing, and the waiter, David, was extremely accommodating and went above and beyond to make the night special and memorable for my girlfriend. I had flowers sent to the restaurant in advance to be presented to her at dinner as a surprise. It was no problem for the waiter to accommodate me in presenting the flowers to the table and surprising her. He even gave her a complimentary dessert for her birthday. It was a wonderful experience and we will most definitely be returning. Thanks a lot for making the night special for the both of us.

There are multiple reasons this is one of my favorite restaurants. It begins with the staff/team members. All extraordinarily welcoming, consistent, and unconditionally professional. The food is always fantastic allowing for really wonderful culinary experience.

This is my 2nd business trip to Charlotte and because I had such a great dining experience at this particular Capital Grill on my last trip, I made sure I went back and it did not disappoint. My waitress, Danielle, was super friendly and gave great suggestions for menu items. My steak was perfect, the lobster bisque was out of this world with huge chunks of lobster. Sam’s mashed potatoes never fails to be delicious, but their Brussels sprouts with bacon was incredible! The staff is super friendly and the manager came by to chat with me a bit during my meal which was really nice. Thank you for an incredible dinner experience...again!

2nd time only confirmed what the 1st visit told me. Out of many Capital stores we have visited, this is the most poorly run. Cold steaks, watery potatoes, poor service and inept management.

Never again Capital Charlotte.

The Capital Grille - Charlotte is my Cheers. My wife and I had date night and sat outside. The excellent weather complimented the excellent food and service. If you haven't tried the Wagyu burgers, head over to TCG before they are gone in mid November!

Excellent restaurant. Food and service are always excellent. On this occasion, we sat outside because of the beautiful weather. However, there was a street performer a block away with some sort of amplification. His singing was loud but not good and this negatively impacted our otherwise pleasant evening.

Took my wife out for our anniversary and it was amazing. They went above and beyond... the card, little hearts on the table and flowers were unexpected but the perfect touch.

It was not one of our best times here. We have been there over (20) times and I don't know if it was because it was Sunday, however our waiter seemed unhappy and unfriendly which is not what we have had in the past.

Anyway.....we will be back, just not as soon as we have in the past and may try some other steak houses in uptown.

Thanks

Only the Capital Grille could take something as ordinary as a "hamburger" and turn it into something elegant! Wagyu and Wine is a taste treat worth repeating over and over again, which is exactly what we plan to do!

We always have dinner here before a show at Belk theater across the street. They never disappoint. The food is always delicious and the service is always perfect. I love this place and love that it's a tradition to dine here with my family before shows.

I had been once before and had a memorable experience, yet this time despite excellent service I was disappointed. They’ve eliminated my favorite, the Delmonico, and more importantly the quality of the food was average at best. Three steaks at the table came out with the wrong doneness, and the portions and quality of the sides ordered were well under our expectations. Lastly the overpriced wine list is a bit much for what is offered. Needless to say, there are several better prime steakhouse choices downtown.
